IAR is accessed via eRA Commons; therefore, reviewers need an eRA Commons account. When a scientific review officer (SRO) or meeting administrator invites a reviewer to a meeting, the reviewer receives emails about next steps in the process.

eRA Module: Internet Assisted Review (IAR) - via eRA Commons

The Internet Assisted Review (IAR) Module is a system to support the review of grant applications and proposals. It provides a secure environment for reviewers to view applications, provide written feedback, and scores. The system provides additional features for scientific review officers or meeting administrators to upload meeting materials to assist in the review of the applications or proposals.

Scientific review officers (SROs) or meeting administrators can invite reviewers to create an account for IAR. If the reviewer is also a grantee, the SRO or meeting administrator can use their existing account.

Reviewers fill out and maintain their personal contact information on the Personal Profile screen in eRA Commons to ensure accurate professional information. If supported, reviewer information can be used to provide reimbursement or honoraria for their services as a reviewer.
